Founded in 2016, the mission of Global Pearls is to empower local changemakers in developing countries to reduce suffering and foster hope among marginalized populations. In 2020, flooding from back-to-back hurricanes devastated communities around San Pedro Sula, Honduras, destroying homes and all belongings. To restore hope, Global Pearls initiated a three-tier project: 1) Train youths in basic electrical skills, construction of solar panels, and installation of solar and wifi systems, 2) The students are given hands-on training at job sites and a chance to install solar and wifi systems at schools in mountain communities, 3) At the end of their training, students receive a set of basic, high-quality tools so they can start working independently. A $10,000 Project Grant from the AllPeopleBeHappy foundation is being used to train 50 youths in basic electrical skills/construction of solar panels/installation of solar/wifi systems, provide them with 50 toolkits, and bring solar/wifi to 8 villages.
